This 1962 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 sedan represents the future of the hobby. As enthusiasts realize just how special unrestored, original cars really are, nice specimens like this-even the 4-door variants-are going to become the next big thing. Showing just 22,876 original miles, this stunning survivor will boggle minds everywhere it goes. For being more than 50 years old, the paint is impressive. I don''t care how talented your painter is, he will never, ever be able to duplicate the factory-applied look that time has polished to a lovely soft patina. GM called this particular "Magic Mirror" finish Wedgewood Mist Blue, and it does kind of conjure a nautical feel, particularly with the Provincial White top. Styling is, of course, ultra-conservative in keeping with the typical Oldsmobile client, but look closely and you''ll find neat details you''ve never seen anywhere else. For instance, dig the way the nose of the car seems to be two separate pieces, including an impossibly intricate (and beautifully preserved) bumper. I don''t know how you clean in that gap, but the look is pretty trick. Modest stainless trim seems to echo the rocket emblem along the sides, and out back there are jet-inspired taillights and another complex bumper in great shape. Even ignoring its age, there''s nothing to complain about on this car. One of the best parts of a truly well-preserved original car is always the interior. Sure, you can get kits and reproduction fabrics, but few will be as nice as the original stuff like that in this Olds. Sure, it''s simple, but the fabric is ''60s funky with vertical pleats in the vinyl backrests that''s perhaps a final echo of the ''50s. A wide, square dash has a very cool scrolling speedometer, a gorgeous steering wheel, and no sign of the cheesy ersatz wood trim that would be all the rage just a decade later. Instead there''s a lot of bright polished stainless and chrome, body-color dash panels, and buttons designed to mimic high-end stereo equipment of the era. An AM radio is one of the few options this car carries, but that''s part of the charm, too. In back, the seat looks almost completely unused, with nice carpets and door panels that don''t even look like someone''s elbow has been resting on them. Finally, the trunk area is just as clean as the rest of the car, including what might be the original spare tire still up on its shelf. The engine bay has been fully detailed for show, and the 394 cubic inch Olds V8 looks awesome wearing its big air cleaner with "ROCKET" decals. All the original accessories were rebuilt, including the generator and power steering pump, and it retains the original master cylinder for the power brakes. Dual exhaust offers a muscular rumble thanks to glasspack-style mufflers, but it''s otherwise quite solid and original under there. Even the original 14-inch wheels and hubcaps are intact, now wearing 225/75/14 whitewall radials. A neat survivor for the Olds fan, this Dynamic 88 is affordable entry into some great shows with HPOF competition. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
